Owning a swimming pool is a big benefit to being a homeowner, but can also be a potential risk and a big responsibility. A swimming pool can be a Summer favorite but if not supervised and not attended to, it can also be a dangerous place for children. About one in five people who die from downing are children age 14 and younger. And every child who dies from drowning, another five receive some sort of emergency department care for nonfatal submersion injuries. Drowning remains the second-leading cause of unintentional injury-related death for children ages 1 to 14; and drowning ranks fifth among the leading causes of unintentional injury death in the United States. Drowning is the leading cause of unintentional death for children in Clark County. Most drowning victims are 4 years of age or younger and a majority of the deaths occur in the family pool. This can be prevented.
Simple Solution is Pool Safety Equipment
There are many products that can be added to your backyard swimming pool area when considering pool safety for your family. Whether you are protecting your young children, older adults or even your pets, keeping your backyard up to date with the latest in safety features is the most important thing you can do for your backyard this Summer.
Pool Fences – pool fences are the more common ways to ensure safety and security and are usually gate-locked and childproof. Many pool fences are designed for ease of use and restrict the occurrence of broken or sticking hinges and mechanisms. Alternatively, a temporary and removable pool fence can be set up whenever children visit the household, perfect for when the grandchildren come to visit.
Pool Nets – Pool safety nets provide a safe, secure barrier while maximizing the available backyard space and preserving the view and ambiance of owning a swimming pool. The squares in the net are small enough that children cannot fall through, but too big to walk or stand on. The netting is completely removable and can be rolled for easy storage.
Pool Covers – One of the most crucial safety devices that a pool owner should have is a pool cover. There are several types of pool covers and each will have its own different advantages and primary uses. While some pool covers are designed to be used as a safety barrier, others are used to reduce pool maintenance and expense. Whatever your needs are, All Safe Pools has your perfect cover.
Pool Alarms – When it comes to pool alarms there are many different choices to consider depending on your budget, type of pool and technical requirements. Remember that pool alarms are just one tool that will help you to make your pool safer.
